oye! whatta weekend! lots of fun, lots of frustrations, too. *laugh* i don't wanna go into the frustrations, tho, so we'll concentrate on the happy! friday's birthday celebration you have already heard about. : ) saturday was fun, too!
when i got up, i organized all the christmas presents into bags for each person/family. i was going to do some wrapping, and go to the post office to mail some of it (and the birthday month winner prizes!), but i lost track of time & didn't get out of here til 12:30 or 1. i didn't get any wrapping done, either. idk why, i just didn't feel in a wrapping mood after all the other work was done. LOL yes, though i love all the routines of christmas presents, i don't really like to wrap presents. i'm not really good at it - better now than when i worked at kirkland's & they tried to have me wrap professionally. that didn't work out so much. LOL
anyway, so i went out to ... somewhere yesterday to pick up a couple things. is it sad that i can't remember now where i went because i've been doing so much shopping lately? (just so no one gets worried that i'm spending myself into debt or anything crazy - shopping doesn't always mean buying, or buying much. sometimes it's nothing, sometimes one or two things.)
when i got home, bret was watching season 2 of vampire diaries online, so i curled up on the couch & started reading Waiter Rant. gooood book! i got a third of the way through before i had to go to bed. i tried to send a blog from the phone, but after writing for an hour, it poofed away. :( NOT a happy camper there!
this morning, i got up early (well, early for sunday!) & met marcie & trish & part of her family at golden corral for birthday breakfast. YUMMIEZ!!! : ) i had a little bite of lots of things - eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuit & gravy - even tried some grits & corned beef hash. the hash was alright, but wasn't fond of the grits. trish's friend, joy, really liked them, tho! heh.
after breakfast, joy, marcie, trish & i went to the theatre to watch harry potter (again for me, of course). even better the 2nd time around! very awesome graphics & i think this film best embodies part 1 of the book. i may have to watch again...on imax, perhaps? idk who'll want to go, tho. anyone? ; )
after the movie, mom was waiting in the front, she wanted to see a movie & since the times worked out, asked if i'd like to see it, too. but i don't do very well w/ back to back movies. idk why! i like the concept of a double-feature! *laugh* i just 90% of the time don't want to see two movies in a row. weird, i know. i do like seeing a movie, going shopping or to a meal, then seeing another one, tho.
so, i went to kohl's to return an ornament & get two other ones - i found an ornament for lisa that i really liked at one store, but then i saw another one ... so... decisions, decisions! i was going to gordman's to return the wallet i got for mom (her new purse is going to have everything that a wallet would have so she said she doesn't need one anymore), but they were paaaacked, so i didn't go in. *sigh* i went to WM, but just spent some quiet time in the car because i didn't really want to go in. i was having an "i miss the boys" moment - and jen had texted me earlier to see if i could watch them for a little bit tonight, but i already had plans.
mom was supposed to get out of her movie a little after 4. i texted to say i didn't really want to go to the production anymore (idk why, i think i was just pooped or something!) but that sam's was open til 6 so we could go there after her movie. never heard back from her. so i went into TJ Maxx to find a book for aunt judy. but they didn't have any more! :( the thing about TJM & Marshall's that i love is also the thing that i hate - can't go in there EXPECTING to find something specific. have to go in & be surprised by what you find. i broke that rule & then i was disappionted, because i really think she would like this book! ah well.
finally, it was about 5, and mom still hadn't responded to my texts, and i thought surely her movie couldn't have lasted THAT long. so i stopped at big 10 for a diet pepsi & then called her - she hadn't gotten my texts - and the movie had been out since FOUR! ?!?! :( anyway, so i just came home. i'm going to finish watching Founder's Day from season 1 & then idk what i'll watch!
i can't believe it's only 6 o'clock! coming home, it felt like 8 or 9, all the darkness! *laugh*
anywhoooo.. i am off to read some blogs. i am woefully behind on all of your posts! ttfn!
